Compute Portal Project Status Update

For those wondering about the long lag between the last release and now, no, the project has not gone silent. We are at work on the next release, the long awaited 0.9 series. We have working job restart, behind the scenes there is better provenance, although not fully exposed to the user, and we are working on getting all the long standing bugs quashed. With the infrastructure being put in place for the 0.9 release we will be able to add workflow enactment, SOAP and REST interfaces, and integrated file management including user file areas to store and use files from in future versions.
Expect the 0.9 release early in 2008.
